Dr. Baker and Dr. Lugg named to Education Week Blogger’s Edu-Scholar Public Presence Rankings
American Enterprise Institute director of Education Policy Frederick (Rick) Hess released his “Edu-Scholar Public Presence Rankings,” which recognizes the top-168 university-based scholars for their contributions to the public square. The GSE's Dr. Bruce Baker and Dr. Catherine Lugg were included in the list in recognition of their work and contribution to public discussion in 2012.
“One small way to encourage academics to step into the fray and revisit academic norms is, I think,
by doing more to recognize and value those scholars who engage in public discourse,” explained Hess. “These results offer insight into how scholars in a field of public concern are influencing thinking and the national discourse.”
